* The 26 tracks here span the years 1962-1967, with 18 of them new to CD with eight of the selections are previously unissued in any format. Among them are great tracks by proven favourites the Jaynetts, the Satisfactions, the Jelly Beans and a pre-Motown Brenda Holloway sounding a lot like her heroine Mary Wells.
* Other highlights include the Zippers from Nashville, Baby Jane and the Rockabyes from the Bronx, an elusive album track from New Jersey's Shirelles, the mysterious Puffs from Los Angeles, Chicago's Lovelites and Gary US Bonds' backup girls the Azaleas from Norfolk, Virginia.
* All in all, a veritable guided girl group tour, all wrapped up, as usual, in a nice fat 6000 word booklet positively bursting with facts and pictures. Notes by Mick Patrick.
